Living on the Water

A publication is available to help guide those who rent or own floating homes, or own and manage moorages in our District. The guide covers a host of issues unique to folks who live on the water and care about protecting and enhancing the natural resources around them.

Written by the Scappoose Bay Watershed Council and West Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District, the guide provides information on safety issues, minimizing impacts to water quality, vegetation and wildlife around floating homes, and provides links to numerous additional resources. A copy of the July 2020 document can be found here: “A Guide To Living on the Water.” [4.0 MB PDF]
